- Donald Carillie: My family and I absolutely love Mexico, the food is great, the people are great, we love the warm and welcoming feel you get once you go there. If you don’t know Spanish, someone will ask if they can translate for you. We decided to invest in Playa del Carmen, our family was so happy. We searched for a good chunk of time to find a reputable agent for my family and myself, especially since I’m not fluent with Spanish, It was a daunting task, no follow up, appointments or call backs by anyone.Then I found American Development my entire outlook on representation changed. Not only did they know about good deals they were very educated in the products and logistics of all real estate transactions and followed up. Thank You American Development for all your help and our beautiful vacation home.Sincerely, Carillie Family

They are 100% trustworthy, absolute professionals, honest and a true pleasure to deal with. Thank you Chris and Leah for your hard work and dedication. You have maximized the best deal for our needs.
- Christopher and Sheila: Everyother agency turned us away and said that we could not find what we were looking for in our price range. We believed it until Chris was recommended to us through a random encounter. Feeling defeated and thought we’d take one last shot we talked with Chris and within ten minutes after walking into his office he explained that he may have something. So we set up a viewing the next day and sure enough he found it! Hit it right on the head. Amazing job! I’d highly recommend their services for anyone.
